Sadly, this guy is only a bureaucrat and does not have any political power to make it happen. The Canadian government right now is pursuing draconian drug-war policies, and the police quoted in this article seem to be lobbying for more of that.

Still, seeing such sensible talk about MDMA from a high-ranking and knowledgeable official gives a glimmer of hope for sensible drug policy in this country, eventually.
If you want drama to stop following you everywhere, try letting go of the leash.
